Wednesday Diet Wisdom: Don’t Get Dressed in the Dark

So today I had my bra on inside out and my pants on backwards!

I was dressing in the dark so hubby might sleep.

I felt this was an analogy for not eating blind.

You need to shed light on your nutrition and your physical condition.

I am sticking to my calorie-tracking, never exceeding 1450 calories a day, and raising my metabolism by weight-lifting and cardio.

My pants are feeling looser and this week I found my good measuring tape.

Good measuring tape

I plan to fill in my measurements chart tonight with the help of my husband. It always helps to have someone measure you. But, you can also do it by yourself.

Stats

Just like knowing your weight and size, (and how to get properly dressed,) knowing your calories and nutrition is important for weight reduction and getting healthier.

Plan your work and work your plan and do it for yourself!

Food and focus go hand in hand.

Eat right. Feel right. Look right. Dress right!!! 🙂❤

Focus on good food

Wednesday Diet Wisdom: Patience dear heart

It takes time to drop excess weight

I have been really working hard at focusing on my weight reduction.

I got myself a Galaxy 4 watch.

The app called Samsung Health tracks so many aspects of my weightloss plan.

It tracks everything from body fat to steps taken.

Most of all it records and analyzes my sleep.

It even records me snoring, if and when I snore!

I highly suggest you weigh yourself daily.

But, be forewarned.

To permanently keep off weight you need to have a lot of patience. Good things take time.

Obviously, one’s weight fluctuates. In fact, it can swing anywhere from 1-3 lbs or more in a day.

But, if you’ve been a good person sticking to the plan of eating less calories and burning more fat through exercise and activity, you are pretty well guaranteed that eventually you will get trimmer and slimmer!

Morning Potatoes

Pan-fried Potatoes and more!

I own the popular Aroma steamer. I like to steam a big batch of chopped Golden Yukon potatoes and then fry them in a cast-iron pan with a medley of vegetables and soy bacon.

French roast drip coffee is the best!

Homemade is hard, but it is the price you pay for tasty food that will most likely be eaten quickly! 😋

Test driving a Tesla

So we went to a Tesla dealership to try out a Tesla on a freezing February afternoon. I wished they would have put us in a more fancier test car like the one on display.

Instead, we wound up in a black Canadian spec car.

The main difference was that it was set to be able to be stopped by cops, if it ever went AWOL

My husband took the wheel. Nothing like a standard or automatic. Completely new.

This was our test car. For about 30 minutes we traveled the vicinity on highways and crossed scary intersections completely engrossed in the digital features.

The Tesla is not to be trifled with. It has many features but the hefty price tag makes one reluctant to buy the aluminum wonder.

I was tormented by the amazing falsehoods one of the salesman espoused. He said the fabric of the interior was leather. Not vegan leather, but leather. He said the wheels were available in different sizes. But both were untrue.

The leather is a manmade textile, and the wheels are all the same size, only the wheel rims are available in plain or sexy sizes.

Not to misunderstand me, but the manager who took us out was a master salesman. He gave us some deadlines regarding tax rebates, tax deductions and low interest rates available.

The auto-pilot feature on the car was cool. We checked out all the extra features like the hepa-air purifier in case of a biohazard such as a nuclear war or shitty-smelling truck. We checked out the height element so as to raise or lower the chassis by a few inches. It was an extra hot seat that grated on me. I was very cold sitting in the back seat, but taking it up to level 3 was too much. I felt cramped in the back seat. The salesman could have helped by pulling up his seat a bit.

In summary, sold is my final review!

My Little Meals

I have a new Pinterest board to track my eating.
My Little Meals
It’s been noted that eating several small meals a day is better for you than eating huge meals infrequently.
So, I am experimenting with the idea.
Even though I am a vegetarian, I still need to be careful about the foods I eat.
Feel free to follow my board.
The best food is tasted and savored.
A good way to do that is eating like a gourmet and not like a gourmand.
